Cumulus Networks' Layer 2 Gateway Services

Cloud startup Cumulus Networks, which develops a version of Linux for switching hardware, is showing off its new hardware Layer 2 gateway services and talking about its integration with VMware's newly unveiled NSX network virtualization offering.

The new services connect virtual networks to physical workloads like databases, storage and appliances, and this, the company says, lets service providers and enterprises provision physical and virtual networks much faster than they were able to do before.
